Bus Transportation on Campus

  •  All passengers MUST wear a mask or face covering to ride the shuttle.

Spring 2021

The University will run a limited All-Stops Bus Service and modified Uptown Loop Service during the Spring 2021 semester. The All Stops Bus will run from 7:15 a.m. – 10:00 p.m. on weekdays and from 10:00 a.m. – 10:00 p.m. on weekends. North Campus stops include Church Street (in front of Ehinger Gymnasium), Swope/M-Lot (in front of Swope Building), Wayne Hall and Commonwealth (Lawrence/Student Rec). South Campus stops include South Campus Apartments, The Village, East Village and Sturzebecker Health Sciences Center. In addition, between each route every bus will have a designated Sanitizing Stop to ensure that frequent touch points are disinfected between every loop.

The Uptown Loop bus will run Monday-Friday from 4:30 p.m. – 10:00 p.m. Please see the Uptown Loop Services and Schedules for updated times and route map.

Bus schedules are available at residence hall desks, the Sykes Student Union Information Center, Public Safety, and on each bus. 

  • Summer Session service is limited to Sessions I & II only.  See Services and Schedules for more information.
  • An accessible bus containing a wheelchair lift is available for mobility-impaired students. See the Accessible Bus page for details.
  • Students using the bus service should be advised that it is impossible to provide timely transportation between North and South Campus within the standard 10-minute class break. Therefore, students should plan and develop class schedules that allow time to be transported between the two campuses through the use of open class periods.

All passengers MUST wear a mask or face covering to ride the shuttle.

Do any SEPTA or ChesCo buses stop on campus?

The SEPTA 104 stops along High Street & at SOMPAC in M Lot and provides local service to Philadelphia.

The SEPTA 92 stops along High Street and goes to the Exton Mall.     

The ChesCo SCCOOT bus stops on New Street, just north of Rosedale Avenue, connecting West Chester to WCU, Kennett Square, West Grove, and other destinations to Oxford.

Why does the bus leave when I'm running for it?

When the driver is trying to merge into traffic, they are looking in their driver’s side mirror so they may safely enter the travel lane. You may think they see you, but their attention is on the other side of the bus.

For everyone’s safety, they have been instructed not to pick up passengers away from the curb.

Where do I find information on bus changes due to inclement weather?

  • The WCU Homepage has WCU weather related information.
